We got to have dinner with the Squirt and the Chickie Baby and their parents tonight, which is a treat for us. I love my little's and their folks and love spending time with them. Lee went too, which is very rare for him, he was having a pretty good day today and went with me. Spending time with the little's makes everything better. They are truly my heart!
Ok On to PS and the LOVEY Beverly. Thank s for hosting us and PLEASE go here to visit all the pinkies!
So (as I stand on my soap box for a moment, just please indulge me!) what the heck has happened to nice paper?
I know, I know Email, Twitter and Facebook, Texting and Skype happened! I Know. Not that there is not a place in life for those forms of communication, I am thankful for them.
As many of you may know I love to write letters, real pen to paper letters. I had quite a stash of note pads and papers from years of writing, now that stash is depleted, so I went looking for note pads and stationery sets. What a rude awakening! $9.00 for 18 sheets of paper. CRAZY and I just can't justify spending that now a days.
So I have been looking in thrift stores and yard sales...I found one box for a dollar, but I have used all of it already. Some times I make my own, but when I write a letter, I just want to write, I don't want to have to make my paper first, and I am a craft as I need it type of gal, so I rarely have cards/paper etc...on hand.
I LOVE the feeling writing a note on pretty paper gives me.
I just can't afford it at these crazy prices. Looking online is depressing...lol either to "cheapy" or too expensive.
Never fear I am still on the hunt, there is a yard sale a few houses down tomorrow...
until then I will have to make do with this poor substitute...
Well at least it's PINK!
Have a great day and if you know of a supplier for great paper that doesn't cost a fortune, PLEASE let me know.
